on the mileage stickers on cars. it improves our energy efficiency. that's a good thing. that is spurring growth. but the kind of reforms we have on wall street have not solved the problem. look at what happened last week's at usb, not only wild and irresponsible behavior, but then we have attorney general holder determining that he general holderubs the fullest -- attorney general holders a betty cannot prosecute ubs because he is afraid ubs is too big to shut down and would destroy financial markets. i thought dodd-frank was supposed to fix that. what was so disconcerting was the democrats did not join senator grassley in their u.n outcry about that protect the integrity of financial markets. it is something that should be bipartisan. but it is not, apparently. that is an example of regulation cannot afford. not all it is it is expensive, it's keeping people from getting loans, and it is impeding economic growth, which we need to pay for that column i talked about. host: on twitter -- guest: it is not. it is something people gravitate to because they use a rhetorical device to say there's a wa

credit that has helped millions of families pay for college. it would extend tax credits for clean energy companies that creating jobs and reducing our dependence on foreign oil. it would extend unemployment insurance to 200 million americans who are still looking for a job. i have to say that ever since i took office throughout the campaign our preference would have been to solve all of these problems and the preference of a larger agreement. a larger deal. that solves our deficit problems in a balanced and responsible way. it is not just deal with tax and the deals with spending and a balanced way so that we can put all of this behind us and just focus on growing our economy. with this congress, that was obviously a little too much to hope for at this time. maybe we can do it in stages. we're going to solve this problem instead and several steps. last year in 2011 we started reducing the deficit to one trillion dollars in spending cuts. those have already taken place. the agreement being worked on right now would further reduce the deficit by asking the wealthiest 2 percent of american
